Roy Lichtenstein Imperfect Imperfect 67" X 79 7/8", 1988, represents the artist’s serious foray into total abstraction within the genre of Pop art. In this work, Lichtenstein’s usual striped and dotted patterns are confined within jagged, geometric lines. To the hasty viewer, it is difficult to discern how the work earned its title. Yet, looking closer, several edges noticeably protrude outside the rectangular boundaries of the work. It is this slight deviation which gives this work a playful quality in spite of its strict lines. A mixture of red, yellow, green and blue distinctively showcases Lichtenstein’s style. Much like this image, Lichtenstein’s skill is unrestricted.
